South City liquor store being investigated for alleged illegal activity

SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

The Hampton House of Liquors is under fire for alleged illegal activity.  

The business sits on Hampton Avenue just south of Chippewa and residents -like Terry Moore- do not like the way it looks.

"It's more of an eyesore than anything because it looks like there's code violations," Moore said.

According to St. Louis Public Information's Officer Maggie Crane, the store owner is currently being investigated by police for illegal activity.  She wouldn't go in to details because it's still under investigation.

"There's an open investigation into this business and the city will be applying for warrants early next week.  As for what those charges are, that's part of the investigation and will be disclosed if warrants are issued," said Crane.
